We were in town for the weekend and this restaurant was close to our hotel so we decided to give it a try. The service was bad. The food was dry and simply average. My son's burger was not even edible. You could tell the...More

This place has an excellent drink menu. The food is really good and it's a nice ambiance. It does get really busy, so reservations are something to consider. While there's a large parking lot, they also have valet parking. There's also a small outdoor eating...More

Best black bean burger ever! Asked park service employees suggestions for lunch, something local. Great choice. Fresh food and excellent service by Megan. Neat historical building too.

Went here for a birthday celebration. Not our first visit. Had a reservation. Got a table quickly, but waited a while for a waitress to come serve us. I think the waitress was overloaded? Food was fair, not that great. Also came out lukewarm. Disappointing....More

It looks like a colonial style place with rich old wood decor. Food & service was excellent! I would definitely recommend for a casual fun time to spend with friends or business associates

We were tired from a long day at the museum and stopped for dinner and drinks. We were seated in the bar because the hostess "didn't have her plan." We had a very friendly bartender who made great drinks and was great at knowing when...More

Friendly service is a constant here. The food is tasty although some more bar food appetizers would be a welcome addition to the menu. The rosemary ham sandwich, cheeseburger and Caesar salad are especially good. We also like the bread pudding. Enjoy!

Located just outside Valley Forge National Historical Park, Black Powder Tavern combines local flavors (edible AND sip-able) with American history in a pub-like setting. Warm woods and just-dim-enough lighting add to the tavern feel, enhanced by a reclaimed sawn oak bar with 12-cushioned stools (plus 6 high-tops), materials that are echoed in the dining room and in the flooring. Weeknights feature happy hour from 5-7PM, with a reprise happy hour on Thurs., Fri., and Sat. from 9-10PM. On Sundays, a prix fixe brunch is offered from 10:30AM-2PM, and the big game is always on.The menu features a variety of small and entree-sized plates, and highlights the flavors, ingredients and culinary trends Philadelphia has become known for—and that pair well with our extensive craft beer offerings. If you’re looking for a new favorite burger, you’ve come to the right place; our veal and chicken versions are hearty and flavorful, as is our pork sandwich. You’ll also find several salads and sharable items such as deviled eggs with smoked trout, pork and chicken wings, polenta fries, calamari and more; plus a fresh fish of the day (and of course fish ’n’ chips, cedar plank salmon and chicken marsala. Whether you stop in for lunch, dinner, happy hour or Sunday brunch, there’s something to satisfy your hunger, and your taste buds.Beer enthusiasts should take note: there are 24 brews on tap and 39 bottles. The selection is tweaked regularly, so if you’re looking for something new and special (or old and admired), this is the place to come. There’s plenty to satiate non-drinkers as well, including milkshakes made with Franklin Fountain ice cream—for an added historical touch, of course. For more details visit Black Powder Tavern online and tune in via Facebook and Twitter to stay up on beer and menu promotions.
